Those excited for the next entry in the Red Faction series, Armageddon, can get excited for an incoming demo of the title on May 3, 2011. Red Faction: Armageddon takes the action back underground and introduces some nasty critters to the fully destructible gameplay the franchise is known for.

“For the first time players will assume the role of Darius Mason and fight their way through Martian sewers and an oncoming alien infestation,” says THQ. “Meanwhile, Darius must clear his name as the colonists have blamed him for unleashing the alien threat that has ravaged the underground cities of Mars.”

The demo will become available on both the XBLA and PSN simultaneously. You know, if the whole PSN nightmare gets sorted out in time. The demo of Armageddon will also allow gamers to check out the title’s Nano Forge tech and Magnet Gun for the first time.

The full Red Faction: Armageddon game launches on May 31, 2011. Sound off in the comments below if you’re pumped for the next entry into the Red Faction franchise.
